Role of the Governors

Being a school governor is a very rewarding job. It gives you the opportunity to have a say in the development of the school. As a governor you will also be involved and aware of the latest developments in the way that children are being educated.

There is a team of Governors at Lewis Street, including representitives from teacher governors, parent governors and local education authority (LEA) governors. The term of office is 4 years, and an apply-election process is adopted to ensure all candidates are given a fair chance.

  • Promote high standards.
  • Set targets for pupil achievement.
  • Appoint the head and deputy.
  • Assist with managing the school's budget.
  • Discuss current curriculum issues.
